History

Josephine Abraham and George H. Abraham Senior, started Abraham Catering Service, Inc. in 1951.

Hap’s dad had a vision that the catering business would someday be bigger and better than the restaurant business.  It turned out that for him, it was correct.

After graduating from the culinary Institute of America in 1968, Hap returned to Omaha to join his mother and father’s catering business.  By 1972, business was booming.  They secured the catering contract for the Firehouse Dinner Theater in the Old Market, which propelled their presence in the catering world through media play reviews.  They also acquired the catering contract for the upstairs dinner theater and the Westroads Dinner Theater.  Dinner theaters came to an end in the mid-80s.

In 1992, Hap purchased the building in Ralston, which is still their home base today.  It has allowed for the business to continue its growth.

His daughter, Jennifer Kobs, joined the family company in 1995, followed by her husband, Brian Kobs in 1996.  Since their arrival, Abraham Catering has grown to be the largest catering company in the state of Nebraska, catering as many as 25 events (totaling 5000 people) each weekend during the wedding season.  They also maintain a very large corporate business throughout the week.
